The New York State Zoo at Thompson Park will hold a Halloween event it bills as "merry, not scary" from noon to 4 p.m. Saturday and Sunday.
At "Boo at the Zoo," there will be a trick-or-treating trail with costumed characters from TV shows, movies and children's literature, and trick-or-treat stations with healthy treats and other goodies.
The cost is the regular zoo admission fee, plus a special event fee: $3 for non-members, $2 for members, and no cost with military identification. Regular zoo admission is $7 for adults, $4 for kids ages 4 to 12 and $5 for seniors.
For more information, call the zoo at 782-6180.
